Eat it with salad, or place this juicy burger into a beetroot bun with spinach, avocado, lemon mayonaise and sweet potato chips aside. Yummy right? It’s filling, tasteful, nourishing, and most important super tasty and easy to prepare!
Best egg replacer for vegan burgers
If you’re vegan you’ll need to replace the egg. Eggs are binders that glue all the ingredients together and make perfect shaped burgers. Instead of the egg you combine one tbsp of ground flax seed with 3 tbsp of warm water. Let it sit for a few minutes until it gels and then add it to the mixture.
